On top of crashing White House parties, getting into feuds with Whoopi Goldberg, and being psycho in general, there was something else difficult to ignore about Michaele Salahi after watching The Real Housewives of DC premiere: How freakin' skinny she is.
During the show, Lynda Erkiletian, a fellow DC Housewife, called her "anorexic."
With so much negative press surrounding her lately, the headline-hunting 44-year-old didn't seem too bothered by all the speculation about her body.
In fact, I'm sure she secretly said: Bring it on.
According to UsMagazine.com, she said:
"One person might think I'm anorexic or skinny; another person might have another thought. Everyone is different. There are bigger things going on in the world than my weight."
"The only way to win is to rise above it," she continued. "If someone hates me or spins hate, the way I win is by rising above it."
She must be having to do a lot of rising above things lately. After the stunts she's pulled, I can't help but think that she wants to make headlines over anything else at this point. No such thing as bad publicity, right ... ?
I'm by no means an expert, but I can't tell from the photos or the episode if she has an eating disorder or if she simply has a skinny frame. It seems that someone who is so image-conscious would want to look her best, and who knows, she could be doing it in a healthy manner.
But after watching Thursday night's show ... I know I'm really jumping to conclusions, but with all of her hyperness and "I love you"s and running around like a madwoman, there's another way people can get skinny: drug use.
I'm just sayin'. Sometimes I do feel like these women have to be on some sort of substance in order to appear on this show. I don't want to jump to conclusions, but after watching her in the premiere, I'm putting it out there.
Hopefully for her sake, she's a naturally skinny woman who just enjoys acting like she's on drugs.
After seeing the photos and the premiere, do you think Lynda had a right to question Michaele about her weight?
